  • Location:
    Nictoglobe Online Magazine,

Welcome to the first installment of Friction Research issue #4, a
collective elaboration on New Media Art practises, based upon the
received submissions from our public call for works Reclaim The Mind, issued September 28 2010
Previous issues of Friction Research:
Art is not about Communication, 2010
Investigating Ruptures in the Art-Political Grid, 2009
Creative Resistance, New Media as Soft Arms, 2007
We start this series with the works of Robert Spahr a generative software oriented artist whose work
connects the internet ecosphere with a time based but temporary representation of itself.
Cleverly playing with current political and societal issues,
"Panopticon", shows an observative yet intense reflection on surveillance, control and the always watching Eye,
likewise "Crude Cruft" accentuates America's position as a wargoing political entity
We will successively publish our submissions in reversed
chronological order. For archival and preservation purposes a dedicated
page will be added whenever a submission is published
